A report from Inter Live suggested that Manchester United are willing to offer around 60 million euros for Juventus and Brazil centre back Gleison Bremer. The club is in need of defensive reinforcements with centre backs like Evans in the twilight years of their career.

United’s most effective centre back partnership of Licha and Varane has been virtually inexistent this season on account of injuries, especially to Licha. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have both had some time on the sidelines with injuries as well.

Their defensive struggles have translated to an astonishing 39 goals conceded in only 27 league games this season. By contrast, they only conceded 43 goals all of last season and David de Gea ended up winning the Premier League golden glove.

Bremer has been very impressive for Juventus since signing for the Turin club in 2022 from city rivals Torino. His performances have caught the eye of soon-to-be United sporting director Dan Ashworth.

The Brazilian is a strong centre back who boasts of excellent aerial ability and ball-playing capabilities. His sense of positioning is excellent, and this makes him an excellent reader of the game. He is also surprisingly fast for a large defender.

He has said that he is inspired by legendary Brazil defender Lucio, who was quite the player in his day.

Bremer has already talked about his dream of playing in the Premier League. Tuttosport have taken this account and state that if Manchester United were to make an offer, he would find it ‘difficult to refuse’.

Speaking earlier this season, he said: “The Premier League is an exciting championship, I would like to play there one day. But I’m only focused on Juventus to win in black and white, we are one of the best teams in the world.”

CalcioMercato claims that the player’s agents and the clubs have reached an agreement on a fee that could be taken into consideration if there is solid interest in the summer.

Juventus are already making contingency plans in case the 60-80 million euros tag is reached by his suitors, including United.

Tiago Djaló was recalled from his loan spell with Lille back in January to be integrated into the squad, while Juve are also looking for more centre-back cover with the likes of Mario Hermoso being considered.
